Stickam, a social networking site, announced the launch of a new feature that lets users stream live video through their cell phones, similar to what Qik, Kyte and FlixWagon already offer, Wired reports. The new feature will also let people see their associated chat room and the number of viewers that are currently watching.
“We also feel that citizen journalists can take advantage of this technology to reach an even larger audience,” said Stickam CEO Steven Fruchter in the article. Stickam’s new service works on a few select Nokia handsets for now, which limits its appeal. Stickam claims it has more than 2 million registered users, and receives more than 2.5 million unique monthly visitors and 4.8 million daily page views, according to the report.
